Coming off surgery, old, and wants more money. That is why the Saints didn't resign him, I think....

Shiloh Keo was activated to replace Dominique Barber
lossing Manning opens another Safety spot cant run with just 3.

Not to mention Keo is pretty bad on defense

Sharper is 36 years old and has slowed substantially with age. He was a terrible liability in the run for the Saints..........and, although it doesn't affect safeties and CBs as much as the other D players, he's never played in a 4-3.

If Underwood wasn't a turd, he would be the one I would sign.

He started some for the Packers last yr and played alot in the SB.

Unless I am over looking someone, I'd rather roll with what we have for now.

That leaves us with only 3 safeties including Keo. We run a lot of 3 safety packages so if one of them goes down, that could be a problem. Also, Keo will have to play minutes when Quin or Nolan need a breather and I'm not thrilled with that idea. I'm actually just not thrilled with Keo playing at all on defense

I'm actually just not thrilled with Keo playing at all on defenseI expect KJ to start against next team and Jason Allen to return to safety where he has played before. Nolan may have a good practice this week ands get the start also. I'd
like to see what Torri Williams could do in a back up role. He has good size.

I expect Torri Williams to be called up from the PS. He's big/fast and appears to have potential. I could see Allen playing S if an injury occurs. Hopefully Keo and Williams are ST guys only. They would scare me as the last line of defense.

Could Mcmanis put in some time at safety in a pinch?

What happened to Tye Hill? I remember he and Jonathan Joseph were two of the top prospects at DB a few years ago.

Don't count out Demps. He played well in preseason and was among the last of the cuts. Also keep in mind that Wade wants safeties that mirror each other.

And btw, Coach Phillips, for the love of god please don't put our back up safety on Kareem Jackson's side. Thanks ahead of time.

I wouldn't mind signing him so I can hear the Texans PA announcer say "C! C!" during introductions again. I used to get a kick out of that, lol.

I've never seen a safety get so completely burned by a TE like Keo did on the lone Tacks TD. It was pretty atrocious.

We only play 3 safeties because Quin is a safety & dropping him down is just like adding a corner & they like Nolan & want to get him on the field.

Now that Nolan will be starting, I bet we'll see more 4 Corner sets & staying with 2 safeties. It's kinda hard to make that adjustment in game & I guess it made sense to stick Keo (who Wade loves) out there.

We'll see JJoseph, Kareem, McCain, & Allen on the field at the same time (which I think we saw a lot of that yesterday) with Quin & Nolan at safety.

If nothing else, this will allow them to add Brandon Harris to the Active list.

Heck, moving McMannis to safety is also an option.

I think the safety that replaces Manning is already on the team... He goes by "Killer", but we know him as Neil Rackers... Sorry Nolan...

We were playing a dime package with 3 safeties in the preseason when Quin wasn't on the field. It has nothing to do with Quin's versatility and everything to do with Phillips' personnel packages.

Demps looks like the obvious choice. McBath could be the wild card.

Any of the names off that list would instill more confidence than seeing Keo on the field, outside of kick coverage.

The names Marlin Jackson and Michael Lewis intrigue me.

If the Texans are looking for a younger guy, then Myron Rolle maybe...

We need a safety who can play the run. Manning's greatest asset was that his side of the field was always contained. He rarely whiffs on tackles. I don't know that any of the guys out there are going to be able to do that. Keo has shown that he's a liability in every aspect on defense. We definitely have to bring in someone but the real question is who that is going to be.

No, he is likely starting next to Quinn next week. It's who comes in after that we are all concerned about.

whut he sed...

If Manning isn't going to go on I/R; i.e., be lost for the season what's all this talk of signing a replacement??

Is there some sort of Rent-A-Player exemption that we get if X number of starters are lost for over a month at one time?
